The agency is able to deliver services to multi-ethnic populations and works annually with well over 5000 African-American, Hispanic, Cambodian and Laotian individuals and families.

Agency staff both reflects and are sensitive to such changing demographics. Agency staff throughout the years has included an Executive Director, Project Directors and Coordinators, Counselors, Outreach and Prevention workers and Tutors. The use of volunteers has also become a routine part of agency operations. Volunteers have operated in a variety of capacities (e.g., fund raising, tutoring) and will continue to do so.
